  1. Hi Aravind,
    thank you for very helpful posts.
    How to call command line external tool from selenium ide.
    For example i want to run dir command and get stdout in text.
    I tried to use runScript using

    javascript{ var exec = document.require('child_process').exec; exec('dir', function callback(error, stdout, stderr){alert(stdout); });}

    but it raises error: TypeError: document.require is not a function.

    Thank you.
